A lot of Sunday mornings, the last thing we all think about is getting dressed up no matter how bad brunch is calling our names. It's one extreme or the other: you end up skipping out on a fun time with friends because you're too lazy to put together something cute, or you're wearing sunglasses, last night's makeup, baggy clothing and sneakers to somewhere you probably should have tried a little harder for.
Especially if you're an avid bruncher, a more casual look is probably preferred most of the time. Don't get me wrong - I live for getting all dolled up for brunch. But I am always down for comfort. I've found that it's about embellishing the casual with a good heel or some really great accessories.
It's about making it look very effortless and chic. It's about a touch of sexiness, a hint of not caring so much, and a sprinkle of just caring enough.
I found this cute shirt at Urban Outfitters that gave me a really beauty vibe... yet in a way reminded me of pajamas or a men's button down. It truly was the perfect "roll out of bed in style" type blouse.
I really kept everything super simple and just added heels and some dainty gold accessories from Silver Queens LA. While it may not be the most comfortable heel, one that has a platform sole and sky high heels is the the style that is going to take your casual ensemble to next level chic.
I think that the "I'm just going to roll out of bed and head to brunch" attitude and feeling will always exist. It's part of what makes brunch such an appealing option for how to spend your weekend. However, especially if you're brunching in a major city, dressing up is always going to be the more appropriate choice.
The trick is to simply make it your own and add those fashionable finishing touches to a super toned down look.
